I so dearly wish more comic artists would put more thought into story telling then into character design, which is really much more like costume design in practice. MrWolfeConcoctions, who I have been watching for a while, is taking the first tentative steps in that direction in a journal post I hope anyone interested in story telling would take the time to read and ponder. I even break my own self imposed silence to add my 2 cents worth on the subject.

I also agree that most webcomics and comics lack any story structure. Most times I find that the opening 10+ pages are wasted on the heroes back story. I'm lost by that point. One of the biggest problems I see these comics is timing. To much time wasted on a topic, fight scene or plot point. Really guys/gals, move the story along!

When I first started, my comics were movie scripts I wanted to sell. I found a script writing book and basic structure to work from. I understood that I have so many pages before an Act of the story is done. If I can't get to it, rework it.

Storytelling is key in webcomics (and print comics) as far as I'm concerned. I'd much rather read something with an intelligent storyline and mediocre art than something banal with amazing art.
